Where to go and where to stay in Roanoke City.

The City of Roanoke (The Star City of the South) is adjacent to the city of Salem and the town of Vinton and is otherwise surrounded by, but politically separate from, Roanoke County.


The town of Big Lick was established in 1852 and chartered in 1874.

Named for a large outcropping of salt, which drew the wildlife to the site near the Roanoke River, it became the town of Roanoke in 1882 and chartered as the independent city of Roanoke, in 1884.

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the middle of the Roanoke Valley between Maryland and Tennessee, Roanoke's importance as the transportation hub of western Virginia has contributed to its rapid growth.

Roanoke is known for its Chili Cook-Off, Local Colors Festival, Henry Street Festival, Strawberry Festival and Festival in the Park.
